Waterline has a fabulous location, overlooking the sea. Our meal was great, my Ika Mata -Cook Islands raw fish salad was the best I had in Rarotonga. The salmon was delicious. Service was excellent.

On the sunset side of the island, perfect place to have dinner and watch the sunset. Delicious food and great staff who are a testament to the Restaurant. Seafood & Mixed grill sizzling plates make the whole place smell delish!
